I’m Dionne Edwards, founder of Get on And Live!
Coaching has been a natural part of my working life for many years. Working as a Senior Manager in the corporate world of blue chip organizations meant I needed to motivate, inspire and encourage my team to be the best they can be. I was pretty successful in climbing the ladder, making money for the companies I worked for and finding ways to reduce their costs. I was good at what I did and yet . . .I was not happy.
I was searching for something more, I often felt like I was ‘playing a role’, like I was wasting time, I was stressed –even at points depressed and ultimately the impact for me was that I felt like I was being ground down by the daily drudge of a life and career that no longer seemed to fit. I wanted to be more, do more, live more . . . essentially to Get On And Live!
In 2006, a leaflet advertising a life coaching course was posted through my letterbox and a light bulb went on. I realized that the part of my role that I most enjoyed was when I was coaching. My happiest moments were seeing others gain the confidence, develop the skills to fulfill their potential, and achieve their dreams and goals.
I decided to underpin my 10 years of corporate and career coaching with a Life Coaching qualification. I qualified as a Life Coach in April 2007 and then went on further extend my skills by becoming a qualified Neuro Linguistic Practitioner in 2009 and a Time Line Therapy and Hypnotherapy Practitioner in 2010. I am currently in the process of completing my Masters in all of the above to further enhance my skills giving my clients the best coaching experience I possibly can.
Since my life coaching qualification in 2006 I have worked with and coached many individuals covering all aspects of their lives and careers. See the testimonials on my site.
Deciding to leave my job and pursue my passion wasn’t an easy decision; it’s one that I spent many hours turning over in mind. It required self – belief, courage, determination, as well as a little planning. Now I am doing what I love and loving what I do - coaching others who want to overcome their personal obstacles, achieve and pursue their personal and professional goals and essentially and get more or of their lives and careers.
